REDUX International: US-Canada info share Visas, biometrics, national ID, & NCTC

c/o The Province 
OTTAWA - Canada will soon begin sharing biometric information and other data about visa applicants with the United States — which then may provide it to third countries under a newly signed treaty. It means the fingerprints or photo of someone who hopes to visit, study or work in Canada could be passed to Washington, which in turn might share them with another country to help verify the person's identity.
